Abstract:

Seven different beamforming techniques including both conventional and high-resolution types have been analyzed and compared in order to develop a quantitative relationship between resolution performance on the other hand and detection and the accuracy of bearing estimation on the other. The techniques discussed are the Blackman-Tukey Conventional, the Weiner Conventional, the Capon Adaptive and the Maximum entropy Beamformers, and the Optimal, the Johnson, and the Schmidt Eigenvector Methods. Detection performance, accuracy, and resolution of the different techniques are discussed and tabulated. Keywords Statistical analysis.
